Happy Saint Patty's Day


Ireland Flag Cookies













1 box Cherrybrook Kitchen Sugar Cookie Mix
1/2 cup light extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup hemp milk
1/4 coconut milk
2 1/2  tsp vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Pour sugar cookie mix in a medium bowl.  Add oil, milks, and vanilla extract.  Using a hand mixer or Kitchen Aid, beat until mixed.  The dough may look crumbly but when you form a ball, it should be soft and bind together easily.  Roll the dough out and cut with cookie cutters.  Place cookies on parchment paper lined cookie sheets.  Cook for 7 to 9 minutes.  Don't over cook.  Cool one minute before removing.

Use your favorite frosting, and dying the frosting red and green.  I make my frosting with  powdered sugar , adding hemp milk, a little at a time, adding a teaspoon of vanilla extract, and beating until you reach the consistency of a thick frosting.

NOTES

**I use the India Tree natural dyes for the frosting.  They do turn out a little paler, you will notice.  You can purchase this at the http://www.naturalcandystore.com/ , if you can't find it locally.
**These cookies were not fragile and held up well.  Even larger cookies did not break or flake.
**This is the cookie mix that I used.
